Symptoms of a Diseased Li vef. DAIN in the ritrht side, under the 1 edge of the ribs, increases on pres sure; sometimes the pain is in the leu side; the patient is rarely able to lie on the left side ; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder blade, and it frequently extends to the top of the shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is affected with loss of appe tite and sickness; the bowels in gen eral are costive, sometimes alternative with lax; the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally a considerable loss of mem ory, accompanied with a painful sen sation of having left undone some thing which ought to have been done. A slight, dry cough is sometimes an attendant. The patient complains of weariness and debility; he is easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensa tion of the skin; his spirits are low; and although he is satisfied that exer cise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them ex isted, yet examination of the body, after death, has shown the liver to have been extensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. Dr. C. McLaxe's Liver Pills, in cases ok Ague and Fever, when taken with Quininef are productive of the most happy results. No better cathartic can be used, preparatory to, or after taking Quinine. We would advise all who are afflicted with this disease to give them a fair trial. For all bilious derangements, and as a simple purgative, they are unequaled. BEWARE OF IMITATIONS.

Yt ws have learned in patience to abtdU, Strange Tribe of Ottoman Gipsies, About their origin they know little, though tbe prophet Job, they say, taught tueir ancestors tbe trade tney now fol low : and they have some slight suspic' ion that they formerly came from Per sia to the country they at present occupy. Ihe Lurks call tnem IchiDcanes, while the term they know one another by is Kom, the title which binds the whole of the widely scattered nomad tribes to irether. Their language itself is styled Romany. There is not the slightest al lusion to a deity in any of their most ancient songs and legends, and they have no religious observances peculiar to themselves alone. They have out one festival, during which for three whole days they abandon themselves to fasting and merriment. The fatted lamb is slain by those who can afford it, the tent decorated with flowers, and passers-bv freely invited to join their repast; all inmation8 and legal processes are tern porarilv adjourned, and their annual tajc is then paid to the Turkish govern ment. One branch of their race, the Zapari, are the most ferocious of their kind. They are to- be touna at the vi lace fetes and large fairs, whither they go to earn a few coins by the dis play of their dancing bears or perioral' mg monkeys. Some few of them are blacksmiths in winter. The Zepttri are all Musselmans, and from their ranks the Sublime Porte finds its supply of hangmen. They form quite a instinct class of themselves, being held in abhor rence even by their savage brethren. Outcasts of outcasts, they stop short of no crime, and are fitting companions for the much-talked-of Bashi-Bazouks or wild marauders of the late disastrous war. ' But cow to turn to the renegade or housed gipsy. Still retaining f lie inher ent desire for liberty so commen to his race, lie avails himself of his dwelling as a shelter only by night, traversing the. streets by day, tricked out in dirty, gaudy clothing, or seated with wife ana family just without the threshold of fcis hut, there frittering the precious hours away. Eis children, if sent to school at all, are only dispatched there to be out of the way, and hia home is as devoid of fur niture and well-nigh as comfortless as the rafrzed tent of his more .beau-like brother. Little by little lie forget his old language, but not his vicious habits, and very soon ends by intermarrying with some poor Greek family vthose members are as lazy and apathetic as himself. Their languagedescended from the old Sanscrit has, besides giv ing the only real clue to their origin, aleo shed some rays over the dark period between the first emigration of the gip sies from India, and their appearance in Europe. Originally the distinct mode of speech of a single and special border tribe of .Northern India, it has, during the many wanderings of the race, appro priated words from nearly every country through which they passed; while on the other hand it lost many of its own words, and still more of its own inher ent power and elegance and much also of its resemblance to the mother tongue, rhese adopted foreign words, their rela tive number, and their more or less cor rupted state, point plainly to the gipsies having passed from India first into Per sia, to their having remained there a considerable time, and to their having wended their way to some Greek country, rjerhatis Asia Minor, and O their de scent thence into their present European homes. It is worthy of further remark, ae proof of their' Indian origin, that the speech of the English gipsies has been found, on comparison, most marvelously akin to that of the natives of Bombay, though some of their words have, Btrangely enough, entirely changed the meanintr thev at first possessed. The speech of the Tchingane is rude, sharp, strongly accented, and somewhat diffi cult to "comprehend. Properly spoken it is harmonious enoueh. though rendered hoarse and almost distasteful by the wild tribes who employ it. W e speak, say they themselves, "as the birds sing, but we sing as the lions roar!" With them papa signifies an apple, cat scissors, rat night, Devil God, while dad seems to be the only word exactly synonymouf with any in our known language. He roic in suffering, the true Ottoman gipsy never sheds a tear. On his legs to th Inst. hR only betakes himself to hii couch when "death is too surely nigh, and departs without a murmur from the lift that has been so full of nnhappiness anJ misery to him. Wild Beasts and the Smell of Blood. An old .tamer of wild beasts says. "As for the smell of Blood maddening them, I know there is a popular notion to that effect, but it is not true. I have had occasion enough to know, when it was my blood they smelt. Lions and tigers raised in captivity are more dan gerous than those that are well broken when taken wild full grown. When a cub born in a cage grows up he will be come impudent, saucy, aggressive, and is too familiar with men to be easily cowed. But the wild beast never for gets when he has been well whipped, and, though his instinct will still prompt to attack he will have his doubts about the results of his getting into a fight. You may handle a young lion for vears, and it will be harmless as a Newfound land dog, until suddenly, without any apparent reason, all its ferocity will be developed." Thk Place whkre tbk Scn Ji-mps a Da v. Chatham Island, lying off the east coast of Hew Zealand, in the South. Pacific Ocean, is peculiarly situated, as it is one of the few habitable points of the globe where the day of the week changes. It is just on the line of de marcation between dates. There high twelve on Sunday, or Sunday noon, ceases, and instantly Monday meridian begins. Sunday comes into a man's house on the east side, and becomes Monday by the time it passes out of tbe western door. A man sits down to his noonday dinner on Sunday and it is Monday noon before he finishes it. There Saturday is Sunday and Sunday is Monday, and Monday becomes suddenly transferred into Tuesday. "Yes, said a man, as lie bent lus elbow to raise the twentieth glass of. beer, "it is overwork that kills." In the rushing, noisy crowd, and amid sounds of gladness, and a thousand mingling emotions, the pulsations of some melancholy chord of the heart, touched by an invisible hand, are dis tinctly audible. The Mud March. "Soldiers ! the propitious moment has arrived!" so commenced Burnsides' ad dress to his army on the ever memorable evening of January 19, IStKJ. Stung by his defeat at Fredericksburg, he had de termined, by a master-stroke, to vindi cate his lame as a strategist, and pluck laurels from the overloaded brow of Lee. The army was then arranged in three grand divisions, each comprising three or more army corps. These grand divis ions were known as the rignt, the cen tre, and the left. The pickets of the right extended to and above the dam across the Rappahannock, a mile er more, above the villageof Falmouth, and cavalry videttes patrolled the country from thence to the mouth of the Rapidan, :lius extending the cordon until a nine- i ion was made with the Army of the Shenandoah. The left rested upon the Potomac at Belle Plains, and had lines extending to the mouth of the JUappa ban nock. Burnsitle's plan of battle involved a change of front that is, passing the left grand division to the right ot the line, leaving the nnht and centre in position The movement was to be immediately followed by the remaining grand divis ions so soon as pontoon bridges had been established, and there was a rea sonable hope that the expeditionary at tempt of the left would be a success. In the march of the left grand division many difficulties were encountered and overcome, until the rain set in, and then, if prudence had been consulted, the troops en march would have gone 5ack into camp. But forward! was the order, and onward pressed those devoted men. The right grand division, although no tified ot the movement, had not broken camp, and it was painful for the men thus chained to discipline and orders, to witness me struggles oi meir compaur ots without giving a helping hand. I lie road passed over the front of those who were guarding the right of the line, and a steep hill was in front between it and Falmouth. The mud seemed intermina ble, and the r.'.in descended in torrents. Forty horses M ere attached to a Napo leon lu-pounaer gun, and tsey could noi budge it. Light horses usually did the work. Caissons and pontoon boats dec orated the hillsides for miles around, and the pitiless rain descended In torrents ; baggage wagons were abandoned; the cavalry moved at a snail pace; rations had given out; shelter was impossible. Burnside had succeeded in changing his front, but the elements had not been propitious; the enemv were made aware of liis plans and the expedition was abandoned. The left grand division re turned to camp. Afterwards the right and center used to ask the left boys if the Tjronitious moment had arrived? That Mud March was the most demor alizing influence that ever disturbed the Army of the Potomac, and had Lee taken advantage of its effects, he would have gained a victory, the consequences ot allien cannot now be determined. The Japanese as Travelers. Until the introduction of railways, steamboats, and wheeled vehicles, the natives were accustomed to toil along slowly and painfully, covering as much ground in a week as may now be trav ersed in a few hours, and even do so at the present time in all parts of their land to which western civilization has not vet reached. And this is the more re markable when we are assured that the inland inhabitants of very few countries travel about so much, as the Japenese. In every shire of England are to be found eldery people who have never ex plored beyond a twenty-mile radius from their own doors, much less paid a visit to the metropolis j but in Japan business, ind above all religion, demands that all sorts and conditions of people should at certain times be travelers of no mean order. For instance, it is incumbent on every Japanese to make a pilgrimage at least once during bis lifetime, either to the holy mountain Futiyama, or Oyama, or to the sacred shrines of Ise; and with many families this pilgrimage becomes in annual duty failing wnicn, misior tune is certain to happen. Moreover, is the Japanese are perhaps the most superstitious people in the world, their belief in the efficacy of certain mineral springs to cure diseases, in the virtues of certain shrines and temples, in the good results attendant on visits to cer tain festivals, takes tsnem frequently from home, and enables them to see far more of the outside world than their homely manners and customs warrant the visitor in believing. Yet, although they are anything but a stay-at-home race, and although for centuries they have possessed a civilization to which the civilization of our Elizabethan age was a barbarous one, there is scarcely a road in the empire worthy of the name. Until recently, the Tocaido the great artery communicating between the east ern capital Tokio (or Yedo) and the ?it t ..it 1 r.i. western capital jviyoto was utterly unuu for carriage traffic, and at certain points even for the passage of horses ; and to this day carriages can only proceed for a certain length, beyond which recourse must be had to the primitive native modes of conTDyance. The Hottest Spot on Earth. One of the hottest regions of the a r;h is along the Persian Gulf, where ittle or no rain falls. At Bahrin the arid shore has no fresh water, yet a com paratively numerous population con trives to live there, thanks to copious springs which burst iortn irom uie bottom of the sea. The fresh water is got bv diving. The diver sitting in his boat winds a great goat-skin bag around hia left arm, the hand grasping its mouth : then he takes in his right hand a heavy stone, to which is attached a strong line, and thus equipped he plunges in and quicKiy realties me fwittim Tnst.-tntlv opening the bog, over the strong jet of fresh water, he springs op the ascending current, at the same time closing the bag, and is helped aboard. The stone is then named up, and the diver after taking breath plunges in again. The source of these copious submarine springs is thought to be the green hill of Osman, some five or six hundred miles distant. Pat Proverbs. At the trial of the Rev. Mr. Vosburgh for the attempted murder of his wife, a medical witness has told of a saying which deserves to be hung up beside one that Mr. Glad stone heard in Ireland about the murder of Lord Leitrim. An Irishman said that the lord ought to have been shot long ago. "Why wasn't he?" asked the ex-premier. Oh, well, you know, was the reply, what s everybody s business is nobody's business." At Mr. Vosburgh's trial the wife's physician swore that one morning when he found his patient sur prisingly better, he said to the husband, Heally this change is most extraordina ry j 1 cannot account for it; 1 expected this morning to find her dead." And to this Mr. Vosburgh is said to have an swered despondingly, "A watched pot never boils. Ihe proverb is so old that one wonders that such an application of it was never thought of before. Two gamblers were in Leavenworth, Kan., several years ago, with about $50 in their pockets. They desired to get money enough to go to California. They went to separate hotels. One registered as a physician, and advertised a remedy tor cholen,. The other put a targe quan tity of veast powders into smali packa ges, with a little croton oil in each, and hired a boy to distribute them. Soon family after family, affected by the cro ton oil, felt what they believed were symptoms of cholera. The sale of the cholera remedy was enormous, and the gamblers were enabled to go to Califor nia. They now tell the story through the Vizycia. City papers. The Chinese. There are said to b four thousand characters used in the Chinese Bible, but of these not more than one-third of the number are in consUnt use. About one-fifth of the latter number, from their frequent occurrence, constitute the great body of the Bible. Fire-sixths of the entire work is made up of one-eighth of the whole number of characters. Of the vast population of that densely crowded empire, women and children constitute a large proportion, and these cannot read. In the country districts not more than one-third of the nales can read, and perhaps not more than one-fifth. In the city it is estimated that seven ten I hs of the males are rsaders; so that, on the whole, the male jopulation may be regarded as a readitg people. Ac cording to late statistics, there is one missionary in China to every two mil lions of its fonr hundred millions of in habitants. The numberof Christians in China is now increasing six-fold every it'iade. A Spitz Dog. A Spitz dog came into this office yes terday, says the Rochester Democrat, in company with a very handsome lady. The dog was undoubtedly handsome too. The editors were all at tteir desks. Up on a sudden, each seemed possessed of the devil, or an impulse to get a better view of the dog a view rendered more enchanting by distanc. The chairs were somewhat has.ily abandoned. The night editor opened a window contigu ous to his desk and sat on the sill, the major part of his body ornamenting the facade. The city editor and the report ers struck up as if by agrefment, "There's no place like home" for a dog. The other editors locked their doors, barrica ded them with patentofice reports and paste pots, and hunted for prophetic judgment on the walls of their little sanctums. The handsone woman stated her business. She undeistood that "one of the gentlemen of the office wanted a lapilog, and I thought I would bring V opgy' up to see if he irould suit." A ghastly smile stole over the features of the city editor, and,.from his lofty perch upon one of the cross-beams to which he had scrambled, with roi-e of alacrity than of dignity, he assured the good wo man that it was perhapi a mistake it must have been the liton office, and that if she would call igain he would give her all the facts of the case. He was a thousand times obliged to her for the trouble she had taken, but really he didn't fancy dogs. Thereupon the handsone young lady departed with a sigh. "Mighty handsome deg, wasn't it?' e.ch observed, as he returned his toil some labors. The Canton River. Of all the extraordinary scenes which can be witnessed, says .Bayard Taylor, nothing can be nvre surprising or astounding to the European than the appearance of the Canton river ; for let him have traveled "far and wide," nought can give him an idea of the scene but occular demonstration. Myriads of boats float on 'the waters; some de voted to handicraft men of all descrip tions; others to retailers of edibles, cooked and uncooked ; boats laden with chests of tea piled one upon the other, tier above tier, until the side of the boat is level with the water's edge; mandarin boats forcing their way authoritatively through the crowd ; war jnnks at anchor; while bjs re and there is a European boat, managed by sailors who give vent to their excited feelings by uttering sundry and divers ejacula tions not particularly complimentary to the good seamanship of the natives, nor expressive of kindly feelings towards them, t lower boats, and others belong ing to artisans, venders of food, pedlars, merchants, poultry and sand-pans are wedged together in one solid mass, apparently impenetrable ; while the air is filled and the ear stunted with the deafening sound of gongs and wind instruments, discoursing most unearthly music, accompanied ty the yelling, screaming, gabbling and clamor of hun dreds of thousands of human tongues, producing a hodge-podge or sounds, un rivaled and unequalled since the build ing of the Tower of Babel. As there is no part of t lie world so densely popu lated as China, so there is no part of China so thickly populated as Canton ; Ihe population of the city of Canton and its suburbs being estimated at above one million ; and the denizens of the river, who habitually reside in their boats, are said to exceed two hundred thousand. The Faithful Sentinel. Peter the Great was a tyrant, but, on the whole his tyranny did good service for his Russian subjects. Arbitrary, as all despots must be, he was not without rude notions of justice," and a certain consideration for those who merited en couragement. One day a young recruit was standing guard before the door of the entrance to Peter's private chambers in the palace of St, Petersburg. He had received orders to admit no one. As he was passing slowly np and down before the door, Prince Mentchikoff, the favor ite minister of the Oar, approached, attempting to enter. He was stopped by the recruit. The prince, who had the fullest liberty of calling npon his master at any time, south t to push the guard and pass him, yet the young man would not move, but ordered liis .High ness to stand back. 'You fooi!" shouted the prince, "don't yon know me?" Ihe recruit smiled, and said, ery well, Your Highness, but my orders are peremptory to let nobody pass." The prince, exasperated at the fellow's impudence, Btruck him a blow in the face with his riding whip. Strike away, lour Highness, said the soldier, "but I cannot let you go in." Peter, in the room, hearing the noise outside, opened the door and inquired what it meant, and the prince told him. The czar was amused, bnt said nothing at the time. In the evening, however, he sent for the prince and tha soldier. As they both appeared, Peter gave his own cane to the soldier, saying "That man struck you in the morning ; now you must return the blow to that leiiow with my whip. The prince was amazed. "Your maj esty," fie said, "this common soldier is to strike me?" "I make him a captain," said Peter. "But I'm an officer of your majesty's household," objected the prince. "I make him a colonel of mv Life Guards and an officer of my household," said Peter again. "My rank, your majesty knows, is that of general," again protested Mentchikoff. "Then I make him a general, so that the beating yon get may come from a man of your rank." The prince got a sound thrashing in th presence of the czar, the recruit was the next day commissioned a general, with the title of Count Oroinoff, and was the founder of a powerful family, whose descendants are still high in the imperial service of Russia. When a Fulton father came home thi ether evening and stepped into the parlor to fill up the coal stove, he was startled to see, when the flame of his hand-lamp dissipated the darkness, that his daughter and her ducky doodle Adol phus were sojourning in the shadow of the lowered gas-jet. But they werr. in ..eparate chair, and were engrossed in a box of figs. He felt compelled to ask: "Something the matter with the gas?" And the tiine-tired youth, grasping one of the golden thoughts that overwhelm us in the time of emergency, answered, as he mechanically picked tip another lig: "No, sir; we turned it down so as not to notice when wo bit into a worm." The Yew Tree. AAer the oak, there is no British tree that in grandeur and endurance can vie with the yew. Like the oak, its length of life is prodigious. Immense shells of dead yew trees are spread sparingly all over the country j but living specimens of this tree cannot now be recorded aa very common, and the ancient yew tree groves have passed away. The yew is fond of mountainous and hilly, but moist districts, and abounds in all parts of Europe except the extreme north. One specimen of the wood of this tree may be seen in good condition at the British Museum, from the excavations at Nineveh, apparently quite free from any effect of time or insects; and another specimen, from the ancient submerged lake-dwellings of Moosseedorf, Canton, Berne, of enormous antiquity. It fre quently grows fo an immense size, and some are recorded in the country more than Sfty feet in circumference. One of the most interesting facts in eonnection with the yew tree is its fre quent occurrence in church-yards; and most of the finest specimens of this country are to be found closely adjoin ing ecclesiastical buildings. The reason for this is not very clear ; but it is evi dent, in many instances, that the yews were not planted near the churches, but that the churches were built near the yews, as the ages of several British specimens of this tree are known to be for greater than those of the buildings to which they are attached, many yew trees dating anterior to the Norman con quest. There seems to be some reason tor supposing that this tree was consid ered sacred in this country before the introduction of Christianity, and that certain religious rites were performed Ifl groves of yew; the first Christian churches being erected on the sites of heathen temples, they necessarily were built near yew trees. But why this tree was retained in the church-yard, and Christian churches afterwards Duilt near yews, yews ultimately planted in church yards, and the wood used for religious purposes, aa is proved by references to "consecrated yew," is most certainly more difficult" to understand. Many trifling reasons have been offered at various times not worth repeating here; but, of all trees, perhaps, no other has so many ghostly legends and superstl tions in connection with it. The shade of yew was at one time considered fatal to any creature sleeping beneath. It was always an emblem of death and silence ; and for this reason, and per haps for its great length of life and free dom from deterioration, it may be se lected aaan emblem of incorruptibility. It appears to the writer that the ancient belief of yew wood counteracting and curing the bite of the serpent may in some way be connected with its reten tion ; but in support of this or any other reason for its -selection there is little or no evidence to bring forward. No insect or caterpillar is peculiar to or lives upon either the foliage or wood of this tree, perhaps for the simple reason that all parts, excepting the fruit, are highly poisonous; and not to small creatures alone, for larger quadrupeds, such as horses, oxen, etc., freqently die after nibbling the leaves. Deer, gouts, and sheep have been said to be exempt, but the contrafy is proved by the fact that last winter between thirty and forty deer were poisoned in the Duke of Beaufort's park, at Badminton, after eating a few leaves that approached the ground. Not only is the tree exempt from all insects, but it is rare to find either moss, lichen, or fungus growing on the trunk or branches. The associations connected with the yew are full of interest. Three kings were slain by bows of the "double fatal yew," namely, Harold, Rufus, and'Cceur de Leon. "The victories of Cressy, Poictiers and Aginconrt were gained by the archers, "dreadful with the bended yew." Mary Queen of Scots promised marriage to Darnley under this tree, to commemorate which a coin was struck. The first meeting of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn took place under a yew tree ; and to add no other incidents, the name of the town of Halifax is said to be indirectly derived from a legend in connexion with a yew tree, and to which, many pilgrimages were made in times long past. A Minnesota Marriage. The Jackson (Minn.)iifpti6icsays: "A former who resides out near the Iowa line had business at Worthington the other day, and if reports are true as they come to us, that was a trip of no ordina ry significance. Night overtook him on his rvtura, and he sought lodgings in a cosy but humble cot on the prairie. He found the house occupied by a lone bach elor, but as in the case of all old bachel ors, he was hospitable and was willing to share his primitive board and lodging with the stranger. The traveler discuss ed the loneliness of his host's condition, and urged him to seek out some dear lone one of the other sex to share that prairie home with him, and thus make two disconsolates happy. This was ex actly what that old bachelor acknowl edged would suit him, and he listenesj with the greatest delight and interest as the stranger delineated the "fine points" of a certain domestic employed by him, scarce twenty miles away, and whom he was satisfied would be love, honey, and a housekeeper to his bachelor friend. In fact, he agreed to broach the subject to her promptly on his arrival home, which he did, "found things not only lovely, but she, too, was more than anx. ions, so anxious that our match-making friend hesitated. Finally, she agreed to balance accounts and scratch off what was due her for per diem if he would only transport her to that lone prairie bachelor. Impulse and business stepped in and he yielded. Soon that over-anxious twain were, face to face, and, aa Spurgeon expressed it the other Sunday, their gushing thoughts simultaneously burst out: "First, let us think of it ; sec ond, let us consider how to perform it; third, let us do it at once." And away they sped to Worthington, and came back man and wife, all in less than two days' notice and four hours acquaint ance." "Can von cure my eyes?" said a man to Dr. Brown. "Yes," said the doctor, "if vou will follow my prescription. "0 certainly, doctor," said the patient, 'T will do anything to have my eyes cured. "What'is your remedy, doctor?" 'You must steal a"horse," said the doc tor, very soberly. "Steal a hors. doctor," stiid the patient in amazement, liow will that cure my eyes?" "You will be sent to State prison for five years, where you could not get whiskey, and during your incarceration your eves would get well," said the doctor, the patii at looked somewhat credulous, but he did not adopt the doctor's remedy. A certaiu parson, who was also a school-teacher, handed a problem to his class in mathematics the other day. The first boy took it, looked at it a while, and said, "pass." The second boy looked at it and said, "I turn it down." The third boy looked at it a while and drawled out, "I can't make it." " Very good, boys," said the parson, "we will cut for a new deal." And the switch danced like lightning over the shoulders of those depraved young mathematicians. Slate is a kind of stone not crys tallized, but foliated, or composed of flat layers, which may he easily separated from one another. In color it varies very ranch ; the most common is bluish black; other kinds are green, brown, bluish, etc. Slate is not very heavy stone, it being about three times the weight ot water. He who has nothing to do in thia world but to amuse himself, has got th hardest job on hand. . Site IIILLABOROltiH, OHIO. THURSDAY, - FEBRUARY 20. 1879. ADVERTISING MATES. 1 w. 3 w.

C. and Lis immediate troops were killed by tbe Indiana, is on trial iri Chicago before a military court. The charge aga nst Reno is that he neglected to obey an order from Gen. Custer to charge on tho Indians simultaneously with the charge made by Custer, whereby the latter was left withont support, and fell before the overwhelming num bers of the enemy. Reno's defense is that he found it would be sheer destruction for Lis whole command if be obeyed Caster's order, and therefore he withdrew his men and left the gallant Cnster to his fjjte. Reno may be a brave man, but it is evident he is not like Lord Cardigan, who led the famous charge of tho British cavalry at Balaklava, right into the Russian batteries. Raff's Guide. We are in receipt from Robert Clrka & Co., of Cincin nati, of the fifth Edition (just out) of Rail's Guide for Executors 8nd Administrators.

It has a great deal of new matter, hundreds of references, and is fully nud completely indexed. Every attorney should have a copy. Cloth S2 00; sheep $2 50. Boston Herald Senator Lamar seems to be the coming man. As a coming man should, he igDores rail way passes and pays his own expen ses. Judge Minshall, of this judicial district, is another rare instance of a high official who refuses to accept railroad passes. There should nn doubteded be a law prohibiting law makers and law administrators from accepting passes, but who is to pass the law ? That's the conundrum.

Marytvdle (O.,) Tribune: The De mocracy had for many years past abandoned the celebration of the 8th of January as a holiday sacred to the memory of St. Jackson. Recently, in view of their ill luck nnd disfavor with the people, they concluded to reinstate the old jamboree with its bacchanaliau accompaniments, and accordingly on the 8th of the present month they held tbeir-big spree at Columbus. Now they think tbey are entitled to success. The only thing that seriously troubles them is to devise some plitn to obliterate tbe mean record they lmvo made for tln mselves diirinir the tiui thev abandoned the memory of Jackson.

Communications for this department are solic ited from the teacher of the county. AH com munirationa should he addressed to David Bai ley, Highland P.O.. Highland Co., O., and should reach him at least tVn day before the isce of the paper lu which they are expected to appear.) Personal. Do not forget the Teachers' Asso ciation at Waverly, on the 22d. Hon. J. J. Burns, State School Commissioner, has promised to visit our County Institute next August The editor of the Ohio Ed. Month ly says: "If this (Worley's) bill should pass, Ohio would have a bet ter system of county supervision than is found in any State in the Union." Frank P. Adams Las succeeded W. F. Harper, as Principal of the Central Normal School at Danville, Ind. Mr. Harper is still missing. Alston Ellis has resigned his po sition as Superintendent of the Ham ilton Schools, his resignation to take effect on March 1st. Mr. Ellis re ceives many compliments on account of his success in the position. Mr. J. H. Rigdon will teach the Ssmantha school this summer. Bayard Taylor. It ia not our purpose to write a eulogy on this noted man. We think the Teachers' Column is not the place for that, but we do not wish to let pass a fitting opportunity of exemplifying the idea of telf-educa-tion, and in the snbject of this sketch we have such an example. Taylor was born in Kennett Square,- in Chester Co., Penn. His parents were plain Quaker people, and their son was not liberally edu cated. At seventeen be entered a printing office; his two years here were bis best school days. At nine teen he entered the school of Nature; that is, he took his knapsack and staff and traveled over the conti nent of Europe on foot Another has said, "Without s university education, he rose from a printer's apprentice to be the wel come Minister to one of the most im portant foreign Governments, at the same time shedding honor npon his native land." If this may be said, and truthfully toes of man who was but little oyer fiffy years of age, in whose youth Pennsylvania was a much old er State than Ohio now is, shall ice sit down and fold our hands because we cannot go to college? Nay, veri ly. Blessed is he who, having op portunities for improving his mind, embraces them with ardor; but thrice blessed is he who, like Taylor, creates the opportunity. It may be said that Taylor was talented; we do not know, except as to his genius for hard, faithful work. Of tbis we can bear testimony, and we think it is by far the best kind of genius to possess. School Books. An article appeared in this paper a few weeks ago, over the signature of "A Teacher," which excited some comment. We suppose that the in tention was good, but the article was somewhat dictatorial in tone. No allowance seemed to be made for difference of opinion. We think that Jones Bros, are en deavoring to' issue a good series of books, but we would be satisfied to see any good book in use in our schools, and we are inclined to think there is moro in the teacher than iu the book. Query Box. Answer to problem in issue of Feb. 6, 1S79: 8-1 chickens taken. We have heard several persons asking a solution of the Egg prob lem given at the la6t Teachers' ex amination. We think it is easy. Our solution is original. Double the whole cost and divide by 12, this will give the price per dozen (?) 10 cts. We are glad that Prof. McKibben consents to publish the answers of the problems. This has assisted us much in the above solution. We like to see such plain, practical prob lems; the teachers might forget how many eggs tLere are in a dozen. GRAMMAR. We have been asked for our opin ion on the following sentence, and we give it through the Teachers' Column: "I speak not of temporal, but of eternal interests." We prefer tBe following analysis: fl (speak not of interests tern poral, (bnt) ffpeak of interests eternal. Words supplied are placed in brackets. We prefer to make "speak of a compound verb, though Greene makes objects similar to this, with the prepositions, "indirect objects." j We make it a compound sentence ; because we runst supply a verb, nn-1 modified by the adverb "not." ' We give this as our opinion, but do not claim to bo infallible. I THE CLEAN NEWSPAPER. There U a growing feeling in every heal thy community against the journals which make it their special object to minister to perverted taste, by seeking out and serving up in a seductive form disgusting scandals and licentious revelations. There is good reason to believe that tbe clean newspaper is more highly prized to day than it was four or five years ago. It is also safe to predict that as people in all ranks of life, who protect their own at least, from contamination, become more conscious of the pernicious in fl uence of a certain class of journals called enterpris ing, because they are ambitious to serve up dirty scandals, they will be careful to see that the journals they permit to be read in the faniify circle, are of the ciass that never forget the proprieties of life. Already men and women of refinement and healthy morals, have had their atten tion called to the pernicious influence of bad literature, and have made com mendable efforts to counteract the same by causing sound literature to be published and sold at popular prices. These efforts are working a silent, but sure revolution. The best authors are more generally read to-day than at any previous time. The sickly sentimental story paper, and wild ranger and pirate story book, are slowly yielding the field to worthier claim ants. To the praise of the decent newspaper, it may be said that where it has a place in the family and has been read for years by young and old, it has developed such a healthy tone, and such a discriminating taste, that the literature of the slams has no admirers. Fortunately, tha r.umberof such families is increasing in the land, and as they increase, the journal that devotes itself to sickening revelations of immorali ty will be compelled to find its supporters solely among thore classes that practice vice or crime, or are ambitious to learn to follow such ways.
